Teaching Fellow at the Frick
Due September 12, 2014

The Frick Collection is now accepting applications for the 2014-16 Teaching Fellows Program. This exciting new initiative is open to highly motivated undergraduate art history majors and graduate students in the humanities who are interested in complementing their studies by teaching from original works of art. Beyond receiving the equivalent of a course in museum education and the opportunity to lead Guided School Visits for schoolchildren in grades 5-12, Teaching Fellows will find community at the Frick and receive compensation for their dedication to gallery teaching. This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in the growing field of museum education and a rare chance to teach with masterpieces at one of the most prestigious museums in the country.
